Thiago Silva Update

In the photo above, Thiago Silva #3 of Brazil celebrated scoring a goal with teammate Sandro #5.

The 27-year-old superstar footballer will join up with the capital club’s PSG squad after taking part in the London Olympics with Brazil.

Silva who was recently signed away from Ialian Serie A’s AC Milan to play for French Ligue 1′s Paris Saint Germain, is getting ready to compete for the gold in the 2012 London Olympics.

Silva wants to win the gold medal at the Olympics and feels that his young Brazilian side has the ability to beat both Spain and Great Britain in the tournament.

Brazil, the most successful nation in world soccer history, have won five World Cups and eight South American continental championships since 1916.

Despite repeated attempts at Olympic glory – Brazil has yet to win the Olympic gold medal, despite the fact that Brazil is regarded by many as the spiritual guardians of “The Beautiful Game”.

Brazil is one of the few teams taking its best players to London and will be among the favorites for the gold.

In addition to Thiago Silva, FC Porto striker Hulk and Real Madrid defender Marcelo are the other overage players included in the 18-man Brazil squad selected for the London Games. Soccer at the Olympics is played with under-23 squads, but each team can use three overage players.

Brazil’s squad also includes several promising young stars such as Neymar, Paulo Henrique Ganso, Leandro Damiao, Lucas, Oscar and AC Milan’s Alexandre Pato.

Footballers who did not make the final cut are Chelsea defender David Luiz, Barcelona right back Daniel Alves and Espanyol forward Philippe Coutinho. Past stars such as Kaka, Robinho and Ronaldinho were ruled out

Brazil coach Mano Menezes remarked what a gold medal would mean for the country.

“It’s huge for Brazilian fans, it’s a dream to get this gold medal,” Menezes said. “It’s the only title we’re missing.”

“We feel we’re capable of getting this gold medal, but we don’t see ourselves as favourites.”

AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi stepped in to veto a previous deal with Silva in June, but PSG’s persistence has paid off and the highly rated Silva is now officially a PSG player – and one of the most expensive player in the history of French football.

“I’m very happy about the signature of Thiago Silva,” said PSG boss, Carlo Ancelotti. “He is a fantastic player. Everyone knows he is one of the best defenders in the world. I think he will improve the team’s defensive quality because, I repeat, he really is one of the best in the world. I know Thiago Silva because I coached him for six months at AC Milan. The club has done a fantastic job to sign such an important player.”

Silva signed for AC Milan in 2008. Since then it has been onwards and upwards for the Brazilian, who crowned his 93 league appearances for the rossoneri (five goals) with a Serie A champion’s medal in 2011.

The capture of Silva’s signature – following hot on the heels of the arrival of Argentine forward Ezequiel Lavezzi from Napoli – represents a real coup for PSG and indicate that sporting director Leonardo and the club’s Qatari owners are aiming to take the club to French and European glory.

PSG also recently signed Silva’s Milan teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
